10 Weeks to Christmas

How appropriate is this quote by Dr. Seuss? We’re already 10 weeks away from Christmas, how did it get so late so soon?

It’s almost time to start thinking about Christmas presents and I always try to start thinking of ideas earlier rather than later because, if there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s the mad rush in the stores around Christmas time. I’m also a great fan of hand making my Christmas gifts and that takes time.

Last year, I was determined to make all my gifts myself and to a certain extent, I succeeded!

Here are some of last year’s gifts:

I baked each couple a batch of brownies
I found this idea on Pinterest. I made each lady a gorgeous pearl and ribbon bracelet.
The boys received a great hand-made moustache mug – Okay, they didn’t. I ran out of time to perfect the idea. Bleh.

I think hand making your presents is such a special and thoughtful idea. For me, spending time and energy making a present is worth so much more than the 5 minutes it takes to buy something in the store which the recipient will probably end up re-gifting anyway.

Gift-wrapping your gifts is just as much a part of gift-giving as the actual gift and I am very excited to be attending a gifting workshop hosted by Macaroon in November. What’s even more exciting is that the proceeds of this event go to The Happy Ethan Project!  Why not join us?

P.S. I already have some very exciting ideas for this year’s Christmas which I cannot wait to share with you!
